WTL replied to WTL's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)tks for the follow up. I ordered the oem tires they originally told me they dont make anymore and the dealer removed the out of balance ones and put the new new ones on. all good now.

WTL replied to WTL's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I got it through the dealer. Kinda expensive but they let me use 100.00 off coupon. Im going to keep the old one bc the new one is acting strange - there is lag in the map when the car moves and the lettering / font is hard to read at night. Im sorry i did the update and im gong to look in going back to the older one when i have time. The map also seems to "jiggle" when moving..... Drag.
WTL replied to WTL's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)tks.interesting article. Anyhow, drove the car again to verify shaking.... Michelin was nice - talked to them to get some info and they told me to return the tires and get what i had originally asked for - OEM tires. On order.
WTL posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I recently had the dealer mount and balance 2 new front tires - Michelin Pilot PS2's - 235/35/19's. Please see the attached note on the work order. This past weekend was the 1st opportunity I had to take it out on the highway and i noticed shaking in the steering wheel from about 55 on up and a more noticeable vibrating which seems to be coming from the middle of the car. Called dealer and they recommend 500 miles highway use to see if they settle in. They explained that they have seen some warranty issues on the Michelin's. Can anyone explain the road fore weight statement? Ive never heard of that before and never had problems with any tires,michelin or otherwise. Tks.
WTL replied to WTL's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)ok, so I did the update for the maps. but since then, the display when on map has been somewhat of a bad picture. hard to explain, but it seems to be a little jumpy when the car is moving and it makes the map seem distorted a bit. also, night mode is hard to see as well as it was before the update. also, lets say I turn a corner, now it seems the map is slow to male the change with the car - lagging - delay. wondering if anyone sees anything wrong here in this pics, ie, software number, versions , etc. TAGRET is missing a value in one pic. Also, all I did was put in the current map cd for update as the software was already done previously. I did the 2015 dvd. any input appreciated.
WTL replied to WTL's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)mystery solved. Inside the leather cd case was this lone cd. I hadn't opened it at first bc all the others were packaged and included outside the case - didnt know there was another inside.
WTL posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I recently purchased what was/is suppose to be the most current Nav CD for my 2006. The part I was told I need is 997.044.904.51 and what was ordered. Dealer part, came all sealed up with 4 discs - PCM 2.1 Multimedia Update CD Cayene, PCM 2.1 Multimedia Update CD 1 911 Boxter Cayman, PCM 2.1 Multimedia Update CD 2 911 Boxter Cayman and PCM 2.1 Multimedia Update CD Navigation. All CD's have the date stamp 08.2009 while the label on the box has 27 08 2015. Attached is the "new" nav cd and a picture of the older 2013 I had in the car. Why would the box read 2015 and the new cd's 2009? How do I tell what I actual have, a newer 2015 set or 2009?
WTL replied to TMK's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)you probably saw this. while I did not replace anything, this is what happened to me.
1). So for awhile now, but very sporadically, I get this message " Check front left side light". Asked the dealer some time ago and they say they've seen it before but didnt know exactly what causes it. They say they have checked connections, changed bulbs, etc., but will have the same car continue to have the message from time to time. Any suggestions as to what the issue is or where I can start to look? 2). Awhile back I started to notice around dusk time, when my headlights are on, the dash lights (illuminated background for tach & speed ) and A/C lighting will be bright when car passes under tree canopy's, shadows then when back in a brighter area will go dim. Dimming sensor is picking up the change in ambient lighting during the dusky period causing the dimming to go back and forth. I dont remember it always being this sensitive and am wondering if I have inadvertently adjusted some setting or is this normal behavior or is a sensor going bonkers? Thoughts? Hows yours work? Tks much.
